CraftyCatz challenge #166..



Good Morning and Happy Friday.....
I hate to say it, but time is flying again, I mean we are already on our third challenge of the year......weird..lol...

Hope you all had a good week and are  looking forward to a nice week-end, although it's been cold and frosty for us in the UK,I much prefer that to rain, oh I hate the rain..

Right down to business ...This week at CraftyCatz, our Fabulous Sassy chose the theme, which is Anything but a Card, I like this, a nice change for everyone, and if you only make cards, have ago at something else, you may even find you love the challenge...just have a try and join us, we have Crimson  Cloud sponsoring us this week, that means one lucky person will win 3 packs of Die Cuts....I would not say NO.... 
OK, I made this cute little nesting box/Birdhouse thingy.....decorated with flowers, and vine from stash...the heart was made by using bendy wire and wrapping straw round it, then some white twine to hold, not perfect, but was quite happy with it I think....inside I was going to use straw for the little nest, after messing the whole room up and having a coughing fit....( the dust that comes off hay, you would not believe..) I went for shreaded paper...I think it worked ok......
If you want to know how I made it, I will try my very best to show you, IT WAS NOT HARD.....lol.....

Here is another view, I stood it on a roll of tape to get the photo, as you can see.....
This is also the very last project my Martha Stewart punch will be involved in, once again it fell to pieces...third time....I give up and I am not replacing..I just wish some company out there, would make a punch that is tough, I mean really tough....I do have dies that do a similar job, but I don't like them as much as a punch.....


All wrapped up and ready to go...if this makes it to Easter, it will be amazing...lol


I suppose that all for me today girls, thanks for your visit, always happy to see you, am off to see if this fits any challenges anywhere, not entered any so far this year....have a fab week-end and take care, hugs Janette.xxx
